Likely regrets. I am in Australia where that is not a civilised hour  
(given that I have to work late in the evening to keep up with Europe).

 from their message:

Regarding your comment on the standardization of the equivalence of
keyboard events, we feel that this is something that different user
agents will need to map differently - i.e., it should be user agent
dependent.  As such, we don't feel that it should be standardized,
particularly in the SVG Tiny 1.2 spec.

I don't think that leaving this for user agents is enough. The spec must  
be clear that there are real problems where authors use mouse-based events  
that cannot be fired by the keyboard or vice versa, since while User  
Agents *may* do something to alleviate the problem there is no  
specification they can follow, and no guarantee that they do it in any
